Barcelona and PSG to Challenge Roma for Lukaku Loan

Roma will soon officialize the arrival of Sardar Azmoun, but they want to add another striker before the end of the window and have Romelu Lukaku in their sights, even though there are significant obstacles. The Giallorossi are in the hunt for a physical marksman.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the former Inter star will become a real option only if Chelsea greenlight his departure on loan without the obligation to make the transfer permanent. It hasn’t happened yet.

Roma would be willing to pay the entire salary of Lukaku in that event. The Blues are pressuring the Belgian talisman to move to Saudi Arabia. In that case, they’d profit from his sale and solve the problem for good. He has been resistant to the idea so far.

In addition, if the Premier League powerhouse became more lenient on the formula, other big teams would be interested. In particular, Barcelona and PSG, should they miss out on Randal Kolo Muani, are keeping tabs. At this stage, the Giallorossi aren’t actively negotiating with Chelsea.

Our Take on Roma and Lukaku

The Blues will likely cave soon enough and agree to a loan to avoid a season-long drama. However, the capital side would need the stomach to wait it out while facing the risk of coming up empty-handed.
